    UPS, UPS Freight Members Authorize Strikes, If Necessary

    UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters have approved giving their respective negotiating committees the right to call a strike, if necessary.

    The UPS members authorized a strike, if necessary, by a 93 percent margin. At UPS Freight, the margin was 91 percent.

    The vote was conducted by electronic secret ballot and the tally was released tonight.

    “This vote by our UPS and UPS Freight members gives the negotiating committees bargaining leverage this week and during subsequent negotiations for the national contract and the supplements,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee. “It is very helpful to have the members’ backing as we work toward negotiating strong contracts at UPS and UPS Freight.”

    AMERICA MAY SOON FACE ITS BIGGEST LABOR STRIKE IN DECADES

    The Teamsters and United Parcel Service could be heading toward the nation's largest strike in decades.


    On Tuesday, the union announced members voted more than 90% in favor of going on strike, if necessary. But despite the overwhelming vote, there are deep divisions within the union on the best negotiating strategy.

    UPS employs 260,000 Teamsters, and has added 40,000 union members since its current contract was reached five years ago. UPS transports an estimated 6% of the nation's GDP, which means a labor dispute could disrupt the US economy.

    At issue is how the shipping giant will expand to offer deliveries seven days a week.

    UPS began offering regular Saturday delivery service just a year ago. It hasn't officially announced plans for Sunday service, but the union says the company has made several proposals to expand weekend deliveries.

    One proposal on the negotiating table is to create a two-tier wage system that would take part-time workers who earn $15 an hour and make them full-time at the same wage. Existing full-time drivers now earn an average of $36 an hour, or roughly $75,000 a year.

    The Teamsters are divided on this proposal, which makes it harder to reach a deal and avoid a strike.
